Two Interactive Adventures to Open In Santa Fe:
Unlock the Paradox // MANIAC Virus
SANTA FE, NM—Velarde-based collective The Eyes of Time opens two new site-specific art installations at form & concept and the Jean Cocteau Cinema, on view October 30th through December 31st, 2020.
Unlock the Paradox is on view at form & concept and features a series of Paradox Incubators comprising tendrils sprawling across the gallery's storefront windows. Their physical form is elevated by augmented reality, where viewers are invited to traverse worlds and meet an otherworldly being with a very human problem.
MANIAC Virus transpires at the Jean Cocteau Cinema. Contained within a movie-poster lives a corrupted hard drive harboring a dangerous passenger—the world's first computer virus.There, visitors are, again, able to cross worlds; this time they meet Patient Zero from when the MANIAC Virus bridged the liminal from hardware to humanity.
An interactive zine connects these two experiences with an exploration of the historic corridor.
“The Eyes of Time helps our players rediscover the world,” says Director and Co-Founder Devon Hoffman, “We intersect alternate realities with existing places, opening new spaces of imagination to play in and explore—this changes the way you see reality.”
Those who delve deeper will unfold adventures well beyond Santa Fe and these strange encounters.
Founded in 2018, The Eyes of Time creates interactive art experiences throughout northern New Mexico exploring history through immersive mystical narratives. Based in Velarde, we are a collective of more than thirty local, national, and international artists.
